ISO TC8 SC12 (Large Yachts) Working Groups and Plenary


The Working Groups addressed new standards for strength, watertightness and security requirements for windows and port lights and deck crane and access gangways, and measurement and analysis of the visual appearance on coatings. The Plenary, among other matters, reviewed potential New Work Items which included structural fire protection for FRP yachts, machinery installation requirements, strength and weathertightness requirements on weathertight doors, anchoring equipment and measurement of noise and/or vibration. These proposals will be refined over the next 3 months prior to submission for an industry review. Should these proposals receive the necessary support from industry, then the New Work Items will be submitted to ISO.
